Ms. S showing Alexandra how to use the icing bag.
We were doing some Impressionists and post-Impressionists Pointillism artwork.
This is Alexandra's beautiful brownie artwork of Monet's Japanese bridge and waterlilies.
Isn't it incredible!!!
Then, we worked with chalk pastels for the first time. Alexandra's "theme" for the rest of the day was teeth." (She will be losing her 2 upper teeth any day.)
We also talked about how Mary Cassatt was greatly influenced by Japanese prints. She even had her own printing press! So, we made some prints by etching into some kind of foam paper with a stylus, painting the foam paper one color, and then making a print.
This is one of my favorite types of art as everything you do turns out beautiful! Above is Alexandra's print of teeth.
